Purpose and Commitment
In this Show
Did you ever have a purpose class? Most people go to school for 17+ years and don’t even know how to define purpose. If you don’t know your purpose, or if it’s vague, you will not have success no matter how much education you have. Remember, the inability to commit is an indication that you’re not clear on your purpose.
You need to get crystal clear with your purpose—that means internally aligned and 100% committed. Purpose is the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.
How do you define your purpose? You write it down everyday. Don’t just do it in your head. If you don’t know where to start, remember that what you do is who you are.
So what do you do all day?
If you’re lazy, on Instagram all day, or complain all the time—then that’s who you are. If you don’t like it, change your purpose by changing what you do.
Take a look at your future self, who you want to become and do the things that person would do. Don’t wait for better timing or to feel more comfortable. Be your future self, today.
By the way, making more income is not a purpose. You have more potential than just meeting basic needs like paying rent or your car bill. One of the biggest destructors of your confidence is holding on to your money—let your money flow.
Remember, when the purpose is high enough, you’ll find the money.
